An RCI Wedding in Tobago!

A June 1999 trip to Tobago Cays by Patt711

Quote: A wonderful place to spend a week, especially if you'd like to get married on a jetty surrounded by blue water and wonderful strangers!
I believe they called this a large studio, but it had a loft with a queen bed, plus two pull-out sofas downstairs. Full kitchen.

Tennis courts and hot tubs - quite a few amenities on-site.

Visit Trinidad too


Before going to Tobago, we spent five days in Trinidad. We usually rent a car wherever we go, but since they drive on the left and the roads can be narrow, we used the local bus as our means of transportation, and took it downtown several times. We ventured into the daily outdoor marketplace, mainly to look around. We did shop at some of the craft shops there, bringing home wonderful hand-carved pieces. One young entrepeneur found out we were getting married and insisted we buy champagne glasses from him, which he had etched with our names, date of our wedding, and doves. They're wonderful and we're so happy we have them now! We were definitely tourists in a less-frequented tourist area,...Read More
